By playing musical instruments students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have opportunities to enhance their competencies in music and build understanding of the fundamental concepts of music. Chapter 6 presents an overview of the benefits students receive through playing instruments, and includes descriptions of the percussion instruments referred to throughout this chapter and explanations of factors to consider when choosing instruments for particular tasks and for particular students. This presentation is followed by guidelines for introducing percussion instruments to students with ASD and descriptions of educational interventions that facilitate the use of percussion instruments with these students.
